Thames Walk section in Independent 50 Best

Good to see that the Thames Path is included in the Independent’s  50 Best Winter Walks in the Christmas Eve issue.

The section highlighted is Richmond to Hampton Court and was chosen by panel member Juliette Dyke who lives in the area and says the seven mile stretch is “packed with history, culture and gorgeous scenery”.

It’s an interesting spread of walks across Britain.

The judging team includes Sarah Spencer of Cicerone.



Hammersmith protest downstream on Thames Path

Those opposed to the tall buildings approved for Hammersmith are gathering on the Thames path outside City Hall on Wednesday 14 December at 10am.

The plans approved by Hammersmith & Fulham Council will spoil the skyline from the Thames Path. SOS, Save Our Skyline campaign, is appealing to the Mayor of London Boris Johnson to use his power to call in the scheme.

It is understood that he may be making the decision tomorrow following the Mayor’s Questions session in the chamber .
